Last in the preview but certainly not the least, we have the MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Twin Frozr, or N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC if you’re looking for the exact model name. Clearly this is a departure from the reference design heat sink and cooler. At start up the fans are audible but quickly fade to nearly inaudible. The heat sink does a great job of keeping the card cool but does tend to dump some heat into the rest of the system.

Another shot of the MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Twin Frozr fresh out of the confines of its static bag. Notice the light blue plug and PCI-e connector covers. This is a nice touch for keeping dust and small fingers out of places they shouldn’t be. Priced at a reasonable $309.99 the N660Ti PE 2GD5/OC is sure to be a hit! The clock speeds of this beast are 1020MHz GPU Core, 6008MHz memory, and 1098MHz GPU Boost.

Here we can see the pair of 6-pin PCI-e power connectors. Spacing is a little tight for removing the cables but we’ve certainly seen worse.

Here we can see the connectors for the card. It is packing a pair of DVI connectors, the bottom is a DVI-I while the top is DVI-D. Display Port is at the bottom left and HDMI is in the middle. It looks this is the reference bracket for the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and with this cooler arrangement doesn’t seem to do anything as we could feel no heat coming from the vent.

Here we have the back side of the card where there are two memory chips at the bottom. Since MSI is using a non-reference cooler there is nothing hanging off the end of the card. MSI uses a custom PCB on their card, where the reference card has a 6.8125 inch long PCB, the MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Twin Frozr uses a 9.5 inch long PCB.
